talking about the mosque at ground zero, and obama wanting to bring terrorist into your own backyard. we under estimate the ability of a small group of radical republicans and their friends at fox news and conservative talk radio to really ratchet things up. i wish someone in the press would draw the parallel between president obama's inability to get congress to work on that issue, because he's right it makes better financial and security sense to close guantanamo, and to draw the parallel with immigration reform, and the trouble marco rubio is having getting republicans on board with the likes of fox news. >> michael: that's exactly right. the president spoke about the senate of where rubio serves and, quote, the habit of requiring 60 votes for even the most modest piece of legislation gumming up the works. that's what has happened. >> it's a full flection addiction at this point. i've been watching tweaking out on the senate floor for years now. every year they've been if the minority since they lost it in 2006, they have filibustered more than ever before. at this point every year we
be trusted. i'm out there. i will talk obama for mdaa. i will talk obama for the patriot act for the visa courts and going after whistle belowers, for putting bradley manning in jail forever possibly possibly. so the he is peen espionage act has been used by president obama more. the last seven presidents combined used it less. >> i don't find it liberal but mainstream. but the robin hood tax of less than 1% on each transaction. >> half a percent would raise $180 billion minimum on wall street transactions. we would get the biggest share that have money would come to new york because it comes from new york. so we would have a federal law guys like the goldman sachs crew can't go to california. in europe they're going to pass it any day now. we could raise money and underwrite what goes on in this city. we have tons of people who are unemployed. 60% of black youth unemployed. >> john: it seems like a very mild form of austerity for those who could afford austerity. you said something bringing people from occupy wall street to a credico administration. what do you have in mind? >> i would u
on many fronts today. president obama again talking trade and immigration reform down in mexico before leaving the country he named kenny pritzker of the marriott hotel family as our new commerce secretary. in boston, the marathon bombing suspect told investigators he and his brother originally planned to plant suicide bombs on the fourth of july but get the bombs done early sol they would focus on the boston marathon instead that. and a whole lot more instead coming up on current tv. going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> if you believe in state's rights but still support the drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the d
it works for those guys but not barack obama. that astounds me. but let's talk about the immigration idea what he has been saying on immigration. we know how it plays in congress. how is it playing in texas? >> um, as you know, as a lot of people know, one of rick santorum's problems besides the fact that he had foot-in-mouth disease in the last campaign, was that he was relatively soft from the point of view from the right, his own party on immigration. he was a relatively moderate on immigration. so was george bush. you look at john mccain, who has had a variety of positions over the years but effectively is a nuanced and informed position on immigration. you get these people along the border and many folks along the border, not everybody but many political folks along the border in states like texas understand that the immigration issue is much more difficult and nuanced. there are family connections. there are economic connections. so you have in most cases not in the case of cruz, but in the case of many of these candidates the greater recognition of the value of immigration. withexc
of culture around obama. i think we cannot not talk about that either. people want to be a part of that, whether they agree with his politics or disagree, this is a really popular president. he is the toast of the town in d.c. so to speak and people no matter what side of the aisle they're on they want to be part of the glitz and glamour that comes with this celebrity president. they want to take part of it whether they agree or not. >> cenk: we got to leave it there, but it comes with a price. that's the problem. if you cross the politicians then you're not going to get invited to the parties any more. they never cross the politicians. they never tell the truth that's why you don't trust the media. what are we doing about jobs. that's what people actually care about. since president obama has been re-elected, republicans and democrats, nothing about jobs. nothing. all right, when we come back we're talking about how to fix that system. how to get money out of politics and exactly to brian's point about what people are dissatisfied with, and what republicans and democrats agree on in th
took it to maureen dowd. charlie pierce and i talked about how irritating this article was. obama took note of a column by maureen dowd who criticized the white house for not deploying pitbull legislative aides to depict votes liking michael douglas did in the movie the american president. no one likes the world to be more like the american president than me. >> we don't know the difference. >> stephanie: exactly my point, jim. obama joked michael what's your secret? could it be you were an actor in an alan sorkin liberal fantasy? [ applause ] thank you. we talk to hot brie, melissa fitzgerald about this. some people go oh, why isn't it like the west wing? because it's not written by alan sorkin. republicans don't get their lines from alan sorkin. they're douche nozzles. 45 minutes after the hour. i'm in a state today. >> are you! you need some smelling salts and a fainting couch? >> stephanie: i haven't even gotten started on the plan b thing. 45 minutes after the hour. right back on "the stephanie miller show." >> this is the dirtiest show -- [ laughter ] >> i have ever been on in al

will give you michelle obama's arms. yes, indeed, this news. everywhere i went yesterday people were talking about did you hear what happened in boston. stunning arrest of three young men there. buddies of zark off -- dzhokhar tsarnaev. phillip has been covering this for the atlantic wire. he joins us on our news line this morning. good to talk to you. tell us, who were the three -- i'm not going to try to pronounce their names. what was their connection to the suspect? >> so the three additional people who were arrested yesterday were -- [ indiscernible ] >> bill: good for you. >> all of whom joined dzhokhar tsarnaev in 2011 at school, they started school at the same time. there were initial reports the three were roommates of tsarnaev although that is not the case. tsarnaev had a dorm room on campus and the other three lived off campus but they were all friends which is probably why they ended up getting into trouble. >> bill: two of them had already been under arrest, correct? for not attending classes? that's right? or violations. >> two citizens of kazakhstan had been detained at some p
. >> obama: jason collins, i had to chance to talk to him yesterday. seems like a terrific young man. and i told him i couldn't be prouder of him. >> john: joining us now is the only straight guy i wanted to talk about this story since it was announced, the one the only sports editor for the nation, dave zirin. >> great to be here, john. >> john: great to have you. dave, how would you grade the overall reaction to jason collins' announcement and what stands out to you the most? >> oh, my goodness. a triple plus as a grade. it is like legendary rock group jesus jones said, i feel like the sports world is wake up to history, right here, right now. if you ever wanted a story that brought together chelsea clinton, kobe bryant and the rock, this is it! that's what makes this so special. yes, you have jason collins coming out of the closet and make history. yes, we finally can say that an active male athlete has come out of the closet in a north american sport finally after all of these years after all of the waiting on the edge of our collective seats. but beyond all of that, what we've seen is
been moved up. president obama starts the day in mexico city where he spent the night in a joint press son for instance with the new mexican leader the president talked about how comprehensive immigration reform is essential for strengthening both nations. >> obama: part of what we discussed is getting it done because we do so much business between our two countries. >> our shared boarder is more secure than it has been in years. the president's going to give another speech this morning and then heads to costa rica where he meets with central american leaders to wynn to talk about treyed and economic development. brutal wildfires are spreading across southern california. the springs fire has now consumed some 8,000 air, or 12 choir miles and extended to within seven or eight miles of malibu overnight. the fire has damaged some 15 homes, and some 100 commercial properties are at risk as some 900 or so firefighters will % continue to battle blaze today. we're back with more show after the break. happy friday. we'll see you on the other side. rights but still
are right, president obama signed it. but then he voted for it. he couldn't have signed it if he hadn't first voted for it. they watched the sequester kick in. we talked about this. they watched cuts to headstart. they didn't do anything about it. kids thrown out of headstart. so what? was their attitude. they watched cuts to food stamps. didn't do anything. cuts to meals on wheels and watched teachers and first responders and cops and fire fighters getting fired by many cities and counties. they didn't do anything. but cuts in the penta goodeon or military didn't do anything. but when air traffic controllers were furloughed and the very first day of the furlough there were flight delays of up to two hours in some major airports and members of congress knew they had to go home for the weekend for another 10-daybreak, which they don't deserve and they might have to wait around the airport for an hour, boy, they got their ass in gear. on thursday the senate in one day passed a bill carving out an exception to the sequester for the faa so they can put all ai
? >> ...and a distinctly satirical point of view. >> but you mentioned "great leadership" so i want to talk about donald rumsfeld. >> (laughter). >> watch the show. >> only on current tv. . >> john: good evening, president obama held a press conference today where he made a strong forceful statement that he might possibly conceivably close down guantanamo bay prison maybe, perhaps, one of these days, we'll see. it could happen. while, according to the neocons president obama is a weak leader because the man just doesn't have the will to turn syria into a full-blown american military quagmire. jason collins came out as gay and is receiving warm wishes of support from most americans, in other words our country has never been more immoral. hey, today's the birthday of oscar winning filmmaker james campion,
're the international house of radio this morning. >> caller: hello. hi, i wanted to call -- i wanted to talk about this guy that said obama said he wanted to fundamentally change our society. and therefore, they are going to become like europe. i already became like europe. >> stephanie: right. but you have better hot coco. >> caller: i hear this so much from americans when i listen to the media, and they don't have any idea how diverse europe is. our economy is doing just great. same with most of northern europe, germany, et cetera granted spain, disaster. italy, greece, yes. >> portugal. >> stephanie: yeah -- >> caller: but the thing they should keep in mind is that part of the reason that those countries have not been able to recover from the global crash, that we might call the bush crash, fundamental reason they haven't been able to recover is a, europe doesn't have a central strong bank. meaning countries can't devalue their own currency. so the spanish euro is basically pegged to a strong german euro. so that causes a big problem, and then the second part of it is that the
at the whitehouse yesterday with president obama in the briefing room. i was there. we will tell you all about it, bring you up to date on the situation in syria. the first lady talking about jobs for veterans day at the whitehouse as well and more positive response including from the president of the united states on jason collins and his big announcement yesterday of coming out of the closet as the first male member of one our four major sports to do so. so we have lots of grounds to cover this morning. >> that's why it's good to have you with us and good to know we are going to be able to hear from you on twitter on facebook and on the phone. the team here, team press in place for you, peter okaygburn and dan henning. >> good morning. >> with alicia cruz on the phone. alicia, good morning. sip ran gets a big wave to keep us looking good on current tv. >> happy may day. >> it is a national holiday in france. not yet in this country. it used to be a bigger deal. this was like worker's day. >> that's why it is a holiday in france. >> around the world, they use
say right, just to make a political statement against president obama is really disgusting. >> michael: i couldn't agree with you more. also he is not running for president again. he is done and he won. let me talk about an ad war is brewing in montana. check out this from the progressive change campaign committee. >> 79% of montana voted support background checks so why did senator max baucus vote against us? senator baucus now that you are retiring, please put montana first. >> michael: very interesting post retirement ad. the nra put out this full page ad. your freedom is under attack but senator max baucus is fighting back. call senator baucus and thank him for being montana first. do you think he will change his gun vote now that he has announced his reenvironment? >> i must say i do not think so michael. first, i think the progressive change campaign committee has done tremendous work in a lot of races. i don't understand this -- the money spent here in montana. i don't understand max baucus's vote. i regret it and deplore it and i think he is wro
they are looking over their shoulder to see who they want to go talk to next. and that's exactly right. >> michael: never before in history has anybody ever said the best line i heard is from george will. so you made television history. obama walked on stage with a couple of lines from dj khaled's "all i do is win." how was that intro received that night? >> i don't think most of us even knew who it was from. i have a younger fiance who told me what it was. and i don't think anybody in that room with the average age is probably 50 knew what he was talking about. it's almost predominantly white that whole group. so it was not exactly the rap music audience. he also made a couple of other references that most people didn't understand. but overall, you know, obama -- the thing about obama is -- obviously somebody else writes the jokes. in fact i know that guy that wrote the jokes a comedy writer by the name of billy kimmel no relationship to jimmy kimmel and the jokes are written for him. but his timing and his delivery is pretty amazing. you know, he -- he has perfect
quite a bit on encouraging green technology. we of course, the whole drama that republicans talked a lot about the presidential campaign is an example of, you know, conservatives say democrats run amok and give all this federal money to green initiatives. the obama administration has done about as much as it can to move some of these issues along against the headwind coming out of capitol hill. have they absolutely grabbed the issue of climate change and pushed it to where they wanted to? no. they tried to do the carbon tax in the early days of the administration, and it passed the house that was then controlled by democrats and ended in the senate. i know you get frustrated with the president not pushing hard enough, but there is a certain level of political reality that this white house has to deal with and it can't press something that is not going to go. if republicans are that opposed he has to figure out ways to work around them and he is with other green initiatives that have borne some truth. cenk: i admit it you win. it's a range. on the key stone pile line, he can make a decisi
of the facts. >> good morning, everybody. today marks the 100th day of the president's second term. he talked about why it's important that the united states has all of the facts before it takes action. >> obama: what we now have is evidence that chemical weapons have been used inside of syria, but we don't know how they were used, when they were used who used them. we don't have a chain of custody that establishes what exactly happened. >> we'll have more as the press conference continues. elizabeth colbert-busch had no problem going after governor mark sanford last night their debate. now the house majority pac is out with a new tv ad reminding voters of mark sanford's bad behavior. >> i used to be my mark sanford but not anymore. he skipped town to be with his mistress on father's day. >> he paid $75,000 to settle charges that he used money for personal travel. there are three republicans and two democrats on the ballot to replace kerry. state officials think voter turnout unfortunately is going to be low we're going to continue to keep an eye on the president's ne
